I thought I had only been waiting 3 months, then I looked at my order and its actually been since July 13 >< Others have been waiting longer, which is some serious patience...

I have some experience with custom shaving brushes from a guy in UK and it can take 3 to 4 weeks to even get an answer on e-mails (after you paid already). So ... I'm in for the next batch and keep looking forward to sonic nirvana, very patiently ... or at least I will try - that patience thing... :o.

After 5 day of ready thing thread through out. I decide to get the GS-X............

But not sure if Justin is on Vacation or not.

 

I will put in order when I can know if the new batched is actually started.

 

P.S.

How is payment worked here? There is only 1/4 deposit option on the website. So do I pay the rest when he ships it, or I pay then each month when he send some updates?

 

BTW, is there any DACT that has more than 24 steps? I am will to pay for it if it has 48 or even 60 steps~~~

current production batch is sold out months ago, but there might be cancellations that you can take over. otherwise you will have to wait for the next batch, which could be a long wait.

 

you pay the 1/4 deposit (in your case i would email justin first to make sure there are still amps available before paying). justin will email us 2 weeks or so before shipping for the remaining payment. the dact attenuator only has 24 steps, but remember there are 3 gain settings, so effectively there are 24x3=72 levels (with possible overlap of course)

LOL, exactely same here ... see Justins post#2275, after I mistakenly was cheering already about being in the 2013 batch :eek:.

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/632948/the-headamp-gs-x-and-gs-x-mk2-thread/2265#post_10152236

 

The current batch has sold out in Oct. 2013 and it is unlikely that there will be 15 cancellations,

so welcome to club of the 2014 batch :beerchug:.

Patience is our motto :D 

 

If you have specific questions, you should e-mail Justin directly.

just so you know, that will only extend the wait. there are some other stepped attenuators like the Khozmo that have 48 steps, however they are too large to fit in the GS-X and there are going to be questions of reliability. i'm not going to use anything that hasn't been proven for at least 5 years

Oh, OK, I think reliability is the key here.

I think I got my money ready. Just want to know if I put my order today or tmr, is the wait time still going to be 12 weeks?

If you have other thing going on and had to delay some batches, I will wait for another 2 month or so and get my DAC first.

 

 

BTW,I remember with some tready agreement, if anything is made in US, you can actually skip the custom when you ship it to Canada.

Is that true?

If you are in the next batch a realistic time-table is more like 6-9 months.

lol, I guess I will put order in May and get it on Xmas then~~~~

Gonna get myself an BDP-105 for my SACD collection first. The old SONY is not gonna cut it.

Also a master7 for my HDVD800.

 

Guess money saving round 2 starts now :P

post #2294 of 3750
I just got a new HD800 recently, and have been searching for the ultimate amp. Sounds like this may be The One. smily_headphones1.gif
Gonna do a bit more research on this but it looks like this will be where my amp money will go wink.gif
The challenge is finding table space for it
